The Astaka | Iskandar Malaysia| A Vibrant Transformation of Southern Peninsula Malaysia

If one does not already know, many Singaporeans are now looking at investing into Iskandar Malaysia. Iskandar is a name given by the Malaysian Government to a strategically designated region in Johor State to transform it into Southern Peninsular Malaysia’s most developed region, where living, entertainment, environment and business seamlessly converge within a bustling and vibrant metropolis, modelling after Singapore, and complementing Singapore’s rapid development. The entire project is divided into 5 flagship zones (Zone A, B, C, D and E), with the objective to bring about economic, social and development benefits to the state of Johor. Till date, Iskandar project has attracted more than RM116 billion worth of foreign investments coming into Johore since year 2006. As a part of the redevelopment, till date, we have seen massive transformation of Nusajaya, bringing upon Malborough College, Legoland, Hello Kitty Land, Educity ( a fully intergrated education hub with some UK universities), Pinetrees Studios, Puteri Harbour and lots more. At the Eastern and Western region, 2 new ports had been built. And lastly, in flagship zone A, there will be an RTS ( Rapid Transit Sytem) station near to CIQ (Customs, Immigration and Quarantine Building). This RTS station will be directly linked to Woodlands North MRT station in Singapore.


The future Central business district of Johor has been master planned, and is indicated to be the old town of Johor Bahru, which excites us here in Singapore. As we all know, investing your money in parallel with this national development plan just brings down your risks in investments and increases your returns on investment! Being a prudent investor, we will always be cautious, and Iskandar project just makes it easier for us to make the right decision!
